Viking’s Wireless Clock System provides reliable, accurately synchronized clocks for your entire facility. Eliminating dedicated clock wiring can
save you thousands of dollars on installation and also allows for easy retrofitting of an existing installation. While most wireless systems are
limited to the range of the transmitter, Viking’s system is not. Each clock acts as a Repeater (transceiver), meaning the secondary clocks both
receive and retransmit the signal, maximizing signal transmission distances. The system is comprised of a CTG-2 master clock, a CL-RFT
clock RF transmitter and Analog or Digital wireless slave clocks. Working on Viking’s 915-928MHz frequency hopping technology eliminates
interference with other wireless products and requires no FCC license, eliminating extraneous fees. The received signal remains strong even
under the effects of noise, obstructions or long distances which tend to decrease the signal to noise ratio. Installation is a cinch for our wireless clocks, just insert the batteries or connect power and hang them. That’s it.
Viking’s CL Series wireless clocks include automatic calibration, as well as diagnostics that allow the user to view the signal strength, how long
since the last time the clock received a signal, a comprehensive analysis of the clock itself and remaining battery life. The 12 and 16 inch wireless Analog clocks receive and retransmit an RF clock sync signal every 4 hours (standard mode) or 12 hours (economy mode) allowing for a
battery life of 5 years or 8 years respectively. The 2.5 and 4 inch digital clocks are powered by an included power adapter and receive and
retransmit an RF clock sync
signal every minute. Viking
also offers a complete line of
accessories for the Analog or
Digital clocks such as: double mount housings, wire

1. Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the best location for the Transmitter/Repeater to be mounted?
Usually, the hallway is the best location because it is mostly open space in typical applications.
How far can the Transmitter/Repeater transmit the wireless signal?
The Transceiver can transmit up to 6500 ft in open space.
Can analog wireless clocks be combined with digital wireless clocks?
Absolutely. The analog and digital wireless clocks are designed to work together, whether the clocks are running on battery (analog wireless clock only), or 24 volts (digital clocks only).
Will the Transmitter/Repeater have interference from cordless or cellular phones?
No, because with Viking’s innovative frequency-hopping technology, interference will not occur. The repeater switches frequencies automatically when the receiver and transmitter is open, thus interference is avoided.
My power source is 220 volts. Can the Transmitter/Repeater be powered on that voltage?
Yes, the Transmitter/Repeater can work on 110 volts/50-60 Hz or 220 volts/50-60 Hz.
2. Troubleshooting
The clocks aren’t receiving the signal. What should I do?
Make sure that the Transmitter/Repeater is in a place where the signal can be transmitted in open space.
What should I do if the Transmitter/Repeater is not powering up?
Measure the voltage between pins L1 & L2. The voltmeter should read 90 - 230 VAC between the hot and the neutral.

D. Operation
IMPORTANT: We highly recommend installing the CTG-2 Clock/Tone Controller and CL-RFT Transmitter before
the installation of the CL Series clocks.
IMPORTANT: Remove pin from back of clock before installing batteries.
In order to install the CL-A12/16 clocks, simply remove the battery cover, and install two (2) D cell batteries (recommended battery type: Duracell PROCELL). After installation of the battery, replace the battery cover and the clock
should start correcting within five (5) minutes. If the clock does not automatically correct itself, then manually press the
Transmit/Receive switch once on the clock closest to the clock that isn’t working. The second hand will go to 8 notifying the user that the clock is transmitting a signal. Then go to the clock that isn’t working and press the
Transmit/Receive switch twice. The second hand will go to 4 notifying the user it is looking for a signal. This should get
the signal to the clock. Note: The Transmit/Receive signal window is 10 minutes and multiple clocks can receive from
the transmitting clock during that period.
Normal Mode / Economy Mode
The CL-A12/16 clocks have two different modes in which they will operate. Normal mode allows the clock to transmit/receive every 4 hours. This mode will allow the clock to have a 5 year battery life (provided good reception).
Economical mode allows the clock to transmit/receive every 12 hours. This mode will allow the clock to have up to a 8
year battery life (provided good reception).
Normal mode is defaulted when shipped from the factory.
To toggle this mode, push and release the Diagnostic Switch and the Transmit/Receive switch simultaneously. If 5 year
mode is selected, the LED will be solid RED for two minutes and the second hand will go to 5 (25 seconds). If 8 year
mode is selected, the LED will be solid GREEN for two minutes and the second hand will go to 8 (40 seconds).

IMPORTANT: If a clock is being added to an existing system, it must be in normal mode.
E. Support
1. Frequently Asked Questions
What battery size do I use for the wireless clock?
The batteries required are two (2) “D” cell batteries. The recommended battery type is “Duracell: Procell [D] size”.
Will the clock cause interference with any of my other wireless devices?
No, the CL Series wireless clock works on 915 - 928 MHz frequency-hopping technology. The clock switches frequencies automatically when the receiver and transceiver is open, thus interference is avoided.
How long does it take for the clock to receive a signal?
Upon power up of the clock, the receiver will be turned on for ten (10) minutes until the signal is acquired. If the user wishes to
manually look for the signal, press the Transmit/Receive switch twice on the movement.
Can the clocks be set manually to display the correct time at installation (as a temporary measure until the master clock
is installed)?
CL Series clocks can NOT be set manually.
2. Troubleshooting
What happens if I power up the clock and the clock is not moving?
The clock should move at normal speed upon power up. If it does not move at normal speed, check the battery and make sure
the clock receives power. Also, be sure to remove the pin prior to starting up the clock.
What happens if the clock does not receive the signal?
Take the clock within close proximity to the CL-RFT Transmitter and power up the clock. If the clock is battery operated, remove
the battery and put the battery back in again or press the Transmit/Receive button twice. If the clock does not correct, call Viking
technical support.
What happens if the clock shows the wrong time?
Move the clock to Diagnostic #1 in order to find the last time that it received the signal. Perform a Diagnostic #3 to check the
gears for the clock.
How do you know if the clock receives a good signal?
Perform Diagnostic #2. See page 8 for detailed instructions.
I have a location with a marginal signal. What should I do?
Move your Transmitter closer to the location or add a Repeater (CL-RFT with JP1 and JP2 in “Repeater” position, see page 4)
between the Transmitter and the location with marginal signal.
3. Diagnostic Testing

1. Install Metal Mounting Bracket - Screw the metal mounting bracket to the wall or ceiling in which the clock is being installed
using the four (4) 6-32 x1” screws supplied in the assembly kit. Use the inner four holes to mount to the gang box. Use the outer
four holes to mount anchors to the wall (anchors not supplied in kit).
Notes: If using a plastic gang box, a ground wire must be routed through the gang box and into one (1) of the four (4) Metal
Mounting Bracket screws in order to provide ground to the Metal Mounting Bracket. Note: The Metal Mounting Bracket MUST
be secured by both the screws going to the gang box AND the anchors going into the wall.
2. Feed Wiring Through Base and Pole - Take the wire coming from the gang box and feed it through the supplied mounting pole
and base.
3. Snap and Screw Base to Metal Mounting Bracket - With the wire now fed through the base and the pole, snap the base to
the metal mounting bracket by first making contact with the lip in the upper side of the base and the metal mounting bracket.
When the base has been snapped onto the bracket, take the two (2) 6-32 x 1/2" pan head screws supplied in the assembly kit
and screw them into the two holes on the underside of the base to secure the base to the Metal Mounting Bracket.
4. Mount Clock Housings to Pole - Feed the wiring from the end of the mounting pole into the hole in the middle of each clock
housing. Align each housing, one at a time, with the four holes on the mounting pole and screw from the inside of the housing
into the pole using the four (4) 8-32 x 7/16” screws supplied in the assembly kit (4 screws per clock).
Note: End caps from one side of each clock must be removed to mount both clocks to the mounting pole. Remove one end cap
from each clock from the side in which the mounting pole enters the clock.
5. Screw Both Housings Together - Using the two (2) self tapping, 6-19 x 7/16” screws supplied in the assembly kit, screw both
back sides of the clock housings together (2 screws per clock).
6. Plug and Secure Wiring - Loosen and slip excess wiring through provided wire clamp (comes attached to each housing) and
tighten the clamp. After securing excess wiring, plug the jack at the end of the wiring into the appropriate jack on the back of the
display board. Perform this task for both clock housings.
7. Mount Display Board to Housing - Using the four (4) self tapping, 6-19 x 1/2" flat head screws supplied in the assembly kit,
take the display board and screw it to the front side of the clock housing (4 screws per clock).

1. Frequently Asked Questions
Will the clock cause interference with any of my other wireless devices?
No, the CL-D2/4 series wireless clocks work on 915 - 928 MHz frequency-hopping technology. The clock switches frequencies
automatically when the receiver and transceiver is open, thus interference is avoided.
How long does it take for the clock to receive a signal?
Upon power up, the clock will look for the signal for 30 minutes. The CL-D2/4 series wireless clock will look for the signal every
minute thereafter.
Do the CL-D2/4 wireless clocks work together with CL-A12/16 Series analog wireless clocks?
Yes, the CL-D2/4 wireless clocks work integrally with Viking’s CL-A12/16 series wireless analog clocks.
How many ways can I mount the CL-D2/4 Series clock?
The clock can be mounted in either surface or double mount. Please see pages 9 and 10 for more information on mounting
instructions.
Can the CL-D2/4 digital clocks be used as an independent clock?
No, the CL-D2/4 requires a communication input and must be used with a Viking Transmitter/Repeater (model CL-RFT).
What will happen if the clock is not receiving a signal?
The colon on the display will flash every second.
How can the clock be powered?
The CL-D2 clock is available in 12-30 volt AC/DC model only. The CL-D4 is available in 16-28V DC / 14-28V AC model only.
AC power adapters are provided with each clock.

2. Troubleshooting
What happens if the clock doesn’t power up?
Make sure the wiring is correct. The power should be on the orange and yellow wires of the harness. The middle (green) wire
is ground. If the wiring is correct, take a volt meter and measure the voltage. The voltage should be between 14 - 28 volts.
What happens if the clock does not receive the signal?
Take the clock within close proximity to the transmitter and power the clock. If the clock does not correct, call Viking technical
support at (715) 386-8666.
I have a location with a marginal signal. What should I do?
Move your Transmitter closer to the location or add a Repeater (CL-RFT with JP1 and JP2 in “Repeater” position, see page 4)
between the Transmitter and the location with marginal signal.
